We Crunched the Numbers: Michigan Ross Programs Are Among the Best in the World


The end of another academic year is here at Michigan Ross, and with it comes an opportunity to look at the accomplishments, outcomes, and impressive impact of our community.

And when it comes to Michigan Ross degree programs - the accomplishments are pretty impressive indeed. Rankings from numerous third-party sources point to Ross degrees and experiences as best-in-class. Of course, it’s no surprise to us that we’re leading the pack with top-ranked programs - we have more in the top ten than nearly any other university in the country.

  • This puts the University of Michigan 3rd in the nation with the number of top-ranked graduate programs, just after Berkeley and Stanford.

And it doesn’t stop there. Some of our other outstanding program rankings accomplishments include:

Michigan Ross’ Full-time MBA Program has been ranked in the Top Ten by Businessweek every year since the ranking was introduced in 1988.
